Collaborations

The Dahesh Museum of Art has been committed to sharing its collection. Each year it lends works of art from its permanent collection to other museums and cultural institutions around the country and the world. These loans, along with collaborative exhibitions, enable the Museum to engage new audiences and promote a lively discussion of art movements and the cultural context that influences how art is understood and appreciated.
